Share this article...

A state health inspector visited El Mojito Mexican Restaurant on Donelson Pike Wednesday and found a restaurant without any managerial control with multiple priority violations, putting the public at risk. The inspector’s final report, which gave the restaurant a score of 65, notes there is no hand sink in the bar area, milk in the prep cooler was days expired and smells spoiled, and the floor under the drink stand was “extremely dirty,” according to the inspector. Additionally, the restaurant was noted to have a dead mouse found under a shelf near their fryer and mouse droppings on the counter next to the prep cooler.

Foods were found to have no date marking, including tomatoes, beef, and cooked beans. Bags of onions were stored on the walk-in cooler floor, and d-CON bait pellets were stored on the shelves above the chest freezer. Dirty ice was also built up inside the chest freezer.
